Cute and Quirky

Bart cart aside, we can't get past the cute accents. A fun lamp, quirky tumblers, and sweet print add a personal touch.

Wheels and Wine

Even if you're not big into cocktails, you can still have a bar cart. We love the idea of using the top tier for spirits and serveware while saving bottom shelf for wine . . . lots of wine!

Luxe and Layered

Although the main purpose of a bar cart is to display spirits, accessories add luxe and interest. Display glasses on a small tray, and use statement books and a mirror to add a personal touch.

Garnished in Green

Yes, your drink's garnish can be decorative too! Similar to flowers on a table, they add interest to your display and offer guests a variety of options. Make an impression by storing your spirits in glass decanters [6] ($19-$39) too.

Girls-Night Glam

Depending on how it's styled, your cart can be customized to any occasion. Gear up for girls' night with a few feminine touches like flowers, purple martini glasses, and champagne (of course!).

Mod Mixer

Similar to furniture, bar carts come in all styles and sizes. This sleek option is fitting in for an eclectic, midcentury-modern space. We love the pop of color from those green wineglasses.

Flea-Market Find

You can booze on a budget by searching for the perfect cart at a flea market or salvage yard [11]. This is a great way to bring a unique piece into your home without spending a lot of money.

Casual Cool

With a little creativity, there's no need for a bar cart! These pink trunks are perfect for a minibar and offer extra storage, making them a great solution for city dwellers.

Shaken Simplicity

Although metallic touches and home bars often go hand in hand, we love the addition of a wooden, midcentury ice bucket (likely a vintage find).
